Top 5 Baby Girl Shower Themes
Unique Shower Ideas For Girls
When Mom is expecting a beautiful baby girl, you have many choices for shower themes that go well beyond the basic pink It's A Girl theme. When you've decided to throw a shower for a co-worker, friend or family member, chances are that the shower theme is one of the first things you'll need to choose during the planning process. In this hub, I've put together some of the most popular choices for little girls.
And don't forget that if you have a fun shower theme that you'd like to share, just leave a comment in the guest book near the bottom of this hub. The more inspiration the better!
Baby Shower Planning Books
#1) Ladybug Themed Shower
A ladybug shower theme is a great option when you are throwing a spring or summer shower, especially if you plan to do a garden luncheon or outdoor picnic event. You can find so many online shops that sell ladybug tableware including the purple and pink ladybug pattern shown to the right. I recently went to a first birthday party for a set of identical twin girls and they used this pattern which features both pink and purple ladybugs. It could just as easily be used for a single baby girl shower too. If you are more of a traditionalist when it comes to ladybugs, you can also find shower tableware that comes in the classic black and red color scheme that is usually associated with ladybugs.
No matter which color scheme you choose (pastel or red/black), just carry the theme through to the decorations and party food too. For instance if you go with the red and black theme, you could make a red punch and float some of those black reusable ice cubes to make the black dots in the punch. Or how about serving large strawberries that you decorate with chocolate dot? That would be another fun option. And of course, cupcakes that are frosted in either the pastel or red icing and then topped with dark chocolate chips or dark M&M's would be perfect for dessert.

#2) Queen of the Jungle
Why should boys have all the fun with their traditional King of the Jungle theme? Now girls can get in on the jungle shower action with this new adorable Queen of the Jungle tableware that is available at numerous online retailers including Amazon (see the link below to purchase). I also love that this pattern incorporates one of the most trendy color schemes of the season....chocolate brown and pink.
For this theme, you'll want your guests to feel like they've arrived on a Safari expedition or in a tropical rain forest. So decorate the shower area with trees and vines and hang monkeys around the room. For games, consider having guests play the jungle animals baby name game or animal charades (this one is always good for a laugh). For food, make animal shaped finger sandwiches by using cookie cutters to cut out shapes like lions, tigers, hippos, etc. Finally, make a fun Safari cake or lion-face cupcakes. You can get directions at Wilton.com for all kinds of animal cakes and cupcakes.

#3) Butterfly Baby Shower Theme
By utilizing a butterfly theme, you can achieve a sweet pink look that is perfect for a little girl's baby shower. It is an especially good choice for summertime or springtime showers. Thanks to Carter baby, you can find the baby shower tableware and supplies shown to the right at many online retailers. If you prefer a flower and butterfly theme without the "baby" motif, you can find some great options at Birthday in a Box.
To decorate for the shower, purchase some beautiful silk or nylon butterflies that you can hang from the ceiling. In addition, you can scatter butterflies around the buffet or dessert table. Speaking of food, consider using the butterfly-shaped pepperidge farm crackers to serve with cheese, salami, or artichoke dip. You can even make the cheese butterfly shaped by using cookie cutters to cut it out. Bow-tie pasta dishes are also great for a butterfly theme.

#4) Little Princess Baby Shower
When a soon-to-be Princess is on the way, a pink and white royal shower is sure to be a hit. Since Mom is the Queen, be sure to have a tiara ready and waiting for her to wear when she arrives at the party. Transform your party area into a majestic ballroom by hanging tissue paper, round paper tissue flowers (think pink, lavender and white), glitter covered stars, and balloons from the ceiling and around the room. Purchase some princess-themed party ware like that shown to the right.
For the food, heart and star shaped items work perfectly for this party theme. You can make little princess wands using pretzels and star-shaped gourmet cookies. Pink punch can be cooled with re-usable plastic ice cubes in a heart or star shape. Serve the beverages in dainty tea cups.
Send your guests home with a baby shower favors such as star-shaped cookie cutters or carriage shaped favor boxes filled with your favorite candy. Both of these items are available at Baby Gifts & Gift Baskets.

#5) Chic Mommy Baby Shower
If Mom is hip and trendy, then a shower that features chic mommy or modern mom tableware is entirely appropriate.
